"It was put together. . .using some older material and a process I came across which generates midi notes from environmental sounds, graphics files, and such. I was always intrigued by Eno's technique of setting up a process and letting it run...that way it makes the results as interesting for me to listen to as it would be to a 'casual' listener. . ."-- Tange, 2010. Treetrunk Records finds this version of Constant to be very listenable, holding interest throughout while remaining consistent. It nicely fulfills the goals for a Constant piece-- see if you agree.

"Constant" pieces, for those unfamiliar, are musical works based on being as minimal as possible-- finding the least possible thing necessary for listening. These pieces tend to be drone in nature. The original Constant appeared on Webbed Hand Records ( www.webbedhandrecords.com ), and others have been released at the TZP Drone Company ( http://www.archive.org/details/tzpdc ) and also here at Treetrunk.
